[talking over each other] >> i just wanted to come in here. they would not even consider another ratings downgrade last the medium term budget was not satisfactory, so they're not even looking for a short term. they're not even concerned about the timeframe. >> look, we can talk about all the unknowns. we do have something that our not -- something that is known. americans are getting older fillies 76 million baby boomers, 10,000 a day or so going to retire. number two, we will have to pay off the debt we're racking up. we do know that we have a problem. no, steve's point is well taken. in fact, as he recalls, it was back during the early 80's 30 years ago that ronald reagan when with alan greenspan and congress ted gets social security on a path that will leave it away from going over the cl

michigan is the state with the republican law to let the state fire all your locally elected officials and unilaterally abolish your town if they want to on their own say so, no matter how you vote. in november this past election, michigan voters repealed that with a direct vote, the will of the people. the month after that, governor snyder and the republicans in the legislature gave the voters of michigan a big michigan republican one-finger salute. they decided to pass and sign into law a new emergency manager law to replace the one that the voters just killed. except this new one can't be killed by the voters. what's that you say? the will of the who now? i'm sorry, have we met? you know those really funny videos about the honey badger and about how the honey badger don't give a bleep? michigan republicans are the honey badgers of politics. they do not give a bleep. because michigan republicans do not care what anyone thinks of them, certainly not the press, but apparently also not the voters, michigan is my personal nominee. michigan is my nominee for the one state that is shameles
point, but what was really prior to that, there will be a change in state laws. there is a change. you see, in wisconsin where collective bargaining rights are now limited, and i think you'll have that throughout the country, and i think pople will support that because, again, there are wages and benefits and pensions that the state and local governments can't afford. the point is a good one, but that's the way i see that. melissa: you know, of course, more right to work states where if you were not compelled to join the union, a lot chose not to. could be because they thought it was not in their best benefit or couldn't afford it. the average membership fee was $85 5 in 20 # 11. as soon as you didn't have to be part of a union anymore, people might have said, even if they wanted to, you know what, i just need that money. >> well, that's true. i think that in 2012, there's about 1.8 million jobs that were created, most of those jobs are nonunion jobs, the right to work laws, giving them the opportunity to be a member or not, but also, in my view, because some unions can sap the entrepr
after restrictive abortion law passed. thank you both for joining me. congresswoman speier, it's a big day. big anniversary. big strides have been made. let's put this graphic up again. five states only have one abortion clinic left. it's a protected right. what's going on in these states though? >> well, there's been a systemic effort by the anti-choice community to go into the states and get laws passed to restrict access to abortion. last year and the year before were the worst two years in terms of the more restrictions that were placed on abortion opportunities for women. 135 laws were passed in over 30 states restricting a woman's right to choose. >> now, diane, when we talk about mississippi, we see that a lot of states and governors are really leading the charge. let me show you how some of the governors around the country are talking about women's right to choose and bors rights. watch this. >> to be clear, my goal and the goal of many of those joining me here today is to make abortion at any stage a thing of the past. >> we're going to continue to try to work to end abortion
to be ending. a federal judge knocking down a union lawsuit aimed at overturning ipse's right to work law in another withholding wisconsin's crack down on bargaining law. taken together that unions lost their legal momentum? james, a lot younger looking in person. glad to have you. >> thank you. neil: what do you think of what's going on? we were briefly chatting that these decisions could be anomalies addressing what is frivolous, but nevertheless, what's the impact of both? >> unions are in trouble. one of the unions following the lawsuit in indiana, the operating engineers, their average dues are $2,000 a year, and the argument was, look, if it's voluntary, members will not pay. that may be true, but that's not an argument for forcing working families to spend $2,000 a year on union dues if they don't think they are getting value for the services. what they are finding in wisconsin, in indiana, in lot of the states that are becoming right to work, is the members will not pay if you don't force them. they say we're not going to force workers to pay. neil: they made a poor argument that
is of course fighting back, saying in a statement senator feinstein has been trying to ban guns from law abiding citizens for decades. they know gun bans don't work and we are confident congress will reject senator feinstein's wrong-headed approach. >> joining me, carolyn, who is pushing a similar bill in the house, and also philadelphia mayor michael nutter. welcome to you both. when i heard dianne feinstein today, very personal,vy emotional, reliving one of the horrific things she went through, as indeed you did. here's what i don't get. i don't get why within minutes, really, of this assault weapons ban being proposed, already we start to hear, it may be impossible to get it through the senate, through the house. and the main reason may be democrats. democrats who are too worried about their own spins and their own backyards and their own political careers to do what they probably believe would be the right thing for their country. what do you do to change their minds and therefore the chances of success of this attempt to change the law? >> well, piers, what you have to understand, a

, you say one gun between the two people. with so much focus now on gun laws, what kinds of guns are used, whether they're legal, what do you know at this point? >> reporter: well, we have been asking around as to whether or not this was a hand gun that was legally owned, legally purchased, what the background is on that gun. obviously there are agents that will handle that part of the investigation. i haven't been able to confirm anything on that end just yet. however, hand guns in the state of texas, you are legally allowed to carry a hand gun if you have the proper license and that sort of thing. however, just because you have that license doesn't mean you can carry guns on to a school campus. campuses and churches, there's a laundry list of places where you can't carry guns and school campuses are one of those. so as the sheriff here said in what i think was a school campus official said it's impossible to check the thousands and thousands of students that come through here, but in theory, this is not a place where you should have had a gun. >> all right, thank you very much.
be banned in the u.s. if in fact this bill is signed into law. earlier in the press conference, senator feinstein explained why it's important to prevent you, law abiding citizens and americans from opening so-called assault weapons which apparently now includes handguns and shotguns. look at this. >> military style assault weapons have, but one purpose and in my view that's a military purpose to hold at the hip, if possible, to spray fire, to be able to kill large numbers. >> sean: forgive me, senator, nobody is holding a handgun at their hip or using a shotgun to quote, spray fire bullets, that's not how guns work. following that parade of information, the national rifle association, they issued this state, quote, senator feinstein has been trying to ban guns from law abiding citizens for decades, it's disappointing, but not surprising she's focused on curtailing the constitution, than focusing on criminals and confident in fact that congress will in fact reject senator feinstein's approach. it's not just the american people who real a gun ban is not the answer for mass shootings. a s
, as well. >> let's talk about gun laws because i know they're considering gun laws in texas that would allow swron to carry a concealed weapon on a campus. they can't do that now, right? >> reporter: it's interesting. the texas legislators have gone through this debate several times. many years ago they passed a conceal handgun law where you can hear a handgun and that's what was used in this incident. but there are places where even despite having that license you you can't carry a handgun. churches and school campuses are one of those. ironically enough, there are lawmakers in austin that want to change that aspect of the concealed handgun law here in texas and allow students to carry guns on to campus. so we'll see how this plays out in that debate, as well. >> all right. ed lavendera, thanks so much. >>> investigators say the new mexico teenager accused of murdering members of his family had hoped to go on a killing spree and die in a shoot-out with police. the 15-year-old was arrested saturday night after deputies found the bodies of his mother, father, brother and two of his sist

tasks, equal pay for equal work, i thought we got that done with that, you know, ledbetter law. you know, gay marriage which he was against in his first campaign and during three of the first four years in office. voting protections, you know, i think this was a veiled attack at voter i.d. laws. and immigration reform which he had a chance to do when he had complete control of the congress in 2009 and 2010 and didn't bother to do and gun control. are all of these things only going to pass with democrat votes in 2013 and 2014? no. he's got to get the kind of gun control legislation you're talking about or is the congress going to validate gay marriage? i don't think so. he couldn't get climate control when he had complete control of congress, do we now think it's going to be passed with republicans in control of the house? no. and as a result, i think this was completely political and not focused on the big challenge the country faces which is getting our economy going. >> sean: i like what our colleague charles krauthammer said it's an ode to big government and you pointed out in the lis
